After I returned from my four day adventure at the San Juan, I received more than a few emails asking about what type of setup I was using while I was there. In answer to those emails I put my artistic skills to the test and drew up a diagram of the rigging that I […]
I was able to swap a batch of mini-hoppers for some great looking Tenkara flies tied up by Karel from Tenkara on the Fly. I have never fished a true Tenkara set up but I am looking forward to trying these flies out on my Arizona small streams. Special thanks to Karel and make sure to […]
